That's correct. As far as Subversion is concerned, Cygwin == Unix, so
Subversion does no EOL translation when checking out the files from the
repository. The DOS mode hack changes the file's contents behind the scenes, so
this messes up the checksums as you've found. As long as you use binmode mounts
and not textmode, you are fine.
